My implementation is as follows: 
public abstract class ParentTest {

    // Some logic

    public Object[] tst_createMultipleParentTests() {
       // Logic to create multiple parent tests



public class ChildTest extends ParentTest {

    // Some logic

    public Object[] tst_createChildTests() {
       // Logic to create multiple child tests


When trying to run this code, I am getting the following exception: 

Found a default constructor and also a Factory method when working with ParentTest. Root cause: Mismatch between instance/method classes [ChildTest] [ParentTest].

Looks like it is happening because @Factory methods are implemented in both ParentTest and ChildTest classes. Does anyone knows how can I fix this?

What version of TestNG are you working with ? Please ensure that you try using the latest released version.
  • 7.6.1 (needs JDK11)
  • 7.5 (last version that supports JDK8)
Also please share a complete standalone example that can be used to reproduce the problem and also share details on how you are running your test (via IDE (or) via a suite file (or) via a build tool )

Thanks & Regards
